Congressional Members Advocate for Release of Western NY Man from Taliban

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Ryan Corbett, a man from Western New York, has been wrongfully detained by the Taliban in Afghanistan for more than 500 days. His family and members of Congress are working to release him and return home. 


The last time the family heard from Corbett was around Christmas. The family said they’ve only had a few minutes to speak with him over the phone. He asked about the family and shares that he is not doing well being held. Members of congress said they’re doing everything they can to bring him home.  


“It has been extremely difficult for our family,” said Anna Corbet, wife of Ryan Corbett.  


For more than 500 days, Corbett’s wife Anna and their three children, have been left worried and wondering why Corbett was taken captive by the Taliban back in August 2022.  


“I miss my dad so much and I worry about him everyday,” said Ketsia Corbett, Ryan Corbett’s daughter.
